Well-Being Ambassador Program FAQs
The ASHP Well-Being Ambassador Program (WBA) is a curriculum-based, virtual learning community that will empower local action, particularly in tribal, rural, and underserved areas, to mitigate occupational burnout and create cultures of well-being in healthcare organizations.
The program includes:
- Complimentary access to the ASHP Well-Being and Resilience Certificate
- Support from Implementation Coaches through monthly Zoom learning sessions
- Connection to the WBA community
- Resources to implement local strategies
The WBA program is available for anyone working in the pharmacy profession in any geographic setting of care, regardless of ASHP membership status.
Our 7-module program is designed for participants to increase their knowledge and skills necessary to apply strategies for enhancing well-being and resilience in their personal lives and professional practices. The curriculum addresses core principles associated with burnout in the healthcare workforce, individual resilience strategies, redesigned work system approaches, and cultures to sustain healthcare professional well-being and resilience. Upon completion of all the modules, participants should be proficient in individual well-being strategies to improve resilience for self and others as well as apply systems-based and human-centered design principles to transform organizations into cultures of well-being.
